http://www.hivdent.org/slides/atrophic_soft_palate.htm Is the whitish part on the top center of this slide thrush (ie: pseudomembranous candidiasis?)?
Response from Dr. Reznik
Yes, the whitish plaques at the top, center of this slide would be pseudomembranous candidiasis. The large red, flat area in the middle of the slide is a good representation of the erythematous form of candidiasis.
